    • Eriq La Salle: (During an interview by Jonathan W.

Insomnia is not a good white film. They're just good films. So why we can't we have good films that happen to have black people, or Asian, or Latino, or any other minority group in them?

    I really think he was great on ER as Peter Benton, unfortunately I hav not seen much more of him, tho I would like to, he did a good job, at protrayal of a african American doctor, and showed the challenges with out being preachy, and I miss him and enjoy the reruns, he and Wyle had a good dynamic together
